Lepechinia

Lepechinia hastata full sun

With a big-leaf tropical look that belies its rugged hardiness, this Hawaiian native belongs to the Mint family and masquerades as a Salvia. Stiff, upright and fuzzy, the mauve-infused stems inject architectural pizazz, while hosting large, spade-shaped felted greenery. Smoky magenta-colored, openly arranged flower spires, some 12 in. tall, grace the spice-scented foundation. known to possess antibiotic properties, Lepechinia hastata delivers late season fanfare, fends off deer, acquiesces to dry poor soil and temperatures as low as 0°, asking only for a well drained abode.

Blooms August – October.

Size: 4'–5' high x 2'–3' wide; hardy to zone 7.

“Very nice web site.  I am especially pleased to see your large selection of perennial herbs with the extensive narratives.  We are building up a garden...after Katrina destroyed our old home.”
